Abstract

This chapter describes an approach to explore large-scale collections based on classification systems. We have called this approach as SV, an acronym for scheme visualization. SV is implemented as a set of SVG charts. A two-dimensional interface maps the main and secondary categories in the x- and y-axes, respectively. The use of color, size, place, and shape in the interface has a predefined intention. The chapter reports preliminary results of our prototype version to explore CORTUPP, a collection of documents classified with the 1998 ACM Computing Classification System.
